Hi all,

How do i stop a hyperlink from changing colour once it has been clicked on. I'm designing the website in FP 2003 and don't want the link to change to blue/purple.

    You need to use CSS for that

    Put this code at the top of your page before </head> tag.

    A:link {text-decoration: none; color: #ffffff}
    A:visited {text-decoration: none; color: #ffffff}
    A:hover { text-decoration: none; color: #ff0000 }

    This will give a color when the mouse if over the link.  When you click and go back the link color will not change.  here I used white for Link,  white for visited and red for hover.  You can change them by changing the value after the colon (:)

    Or you can do it in Frontpage.

    - Open the page in frontpage
    - Right click any where in the page
    - Select page properties
    - Select background
    - Select Hyperlink color
    - Select Visited Hyperlink Color
    - Select Active Hyperlink Color

    Save the page.

    Or in every page change the <body> tag into <body link="#0000FF" vlink="#0000FF" alink="#0000FF">

    You can change the colors between the quotations as you like.
